Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
This actually turned out pretty good, but I did make a few changes. First of all, I cut the recipe in half because it was only for 2 of us. I used ground turkey, reduced fat sour cream and chicken stock because that is what I had. I also added diced bell peppers and some paprika. I felt it needed more sour cream because it was still a little thin, so I added in about another 1/4 cup. I will definitely make this again because it was yummy, easy, cheap and very filling!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Absolutely delicious! This was my first time to make zucchini bread and this was easy and yummy. I used egg sub and applesauce instead of eggs and oil, just to cut out the fat. Great recipe! Thanks! ***I've been making this all summer because of my full garden & it is still my favorite!! I have made some additional changes that I think have made this bread even better. I use less sugar because replacing the oil with applesauce adds natural sweetness. I use 3/4 cup white sugar & 3/4 cup brown sugar. I also sub 1 cup of wheat flour for the white. Don't drain the zucchini completely before adding it in the mix. The natural juice makes it really moist!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
My husband ate the whole batch in 2 days! I used peanuts because my hubby doesn't like walnuts. I also didn't melt the butter. I just creamed it with the brown sugar and it turned out just fine! My only complaint is they fell flat in the middle and didn't hold together very well. They were yummy though, so I will be making these again!

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I made these to go with our Father's Day breakfast. They were super easy and very tasty! I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made my own. Just mix 7/8 cup of regular flour and 1 tsp of baking powder per cup needed for the recipe. They were even better warmed up and topped with butter and honey the next morning! Thanks!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Hello! I just made this fondant and it was super fabulous!! I've made a few fondant cakes using the Rolled Buttercream Fondant by Kelley, but I am making my 1st wedding cake in a few weeks and I wanted to try out a different recipe. It tasted pretty good, although I do prefer the flavor of Rolled Buttercream Fondant. I will definitely be using this fondant because it was super easy and not as sticky as you would think! The best parts are the ease of coloring the fondant and how quick it comes together. **Okay I just changed my rating from a 5 to a 3 and this is why: It truly was easy to make, but when I actually went to use it for my cake it was really hard to roll without sticking to my counter. I had to use LOTS of powdered sugar, which made a huge mess to clean up. Also it was not smooth and I ended up having many cracks all over my cake! Each batch turned out this way and I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry, but I will be switching back to the Rolled Buttercream Fondant!

Turkey Roll-Ups

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
The spread is delicious!! The balance of the herbs is wonderful and I especially love the dill. I'm actually going to make this again for our Memorial Day cookout and serve it as a dip for veggies! Thanks for the recipe!

Red Bean 'N' Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
This was really good!! It had a light sweet and tangy flavor. I added extra peppers and some minced garlic while cooking the onions. I took the advice of another member and served it over brown rice. Excellent idea! I just made a little slurry of cornstarch and water, added it to the soup and let it reduce longer, until it became thick. We will sooo be making this again!!

'Got Some Crust' Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Woohoo this was delicious! I've been using another Mac & Cheese recipe from this site for awhile, but I wanted to try a new one. This is my new go to Mac & Cheese recipe!! The only changes I made were adding some chopped red & green peppers, a few cloves of minced garlic and a little swiss cheese for some extra creaminess!! This was also easier to make than other cheese sauces! Everyone should give this a try! PS~I agree with one of the other reviewers. There was no way this could feed 12, at least not in my family! I cut the recipe in half, but my husband and I alone did not leave any leftovers. That would mean together we ate 6 servings...I certainly don't think we did! :)

Bacon-Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
These were pretty good eggs, but nothing spectacular. I substituted fat free miracle whip for mayo and turkey bacon for regular. I added some grated onion and paprika to the mix for more flavor. The bacon and cheese didn't really add much flavor and the mix was dry, so I also had to add more miracle whip and mustard. I will make these again, but with my additions and I will probably play around with it more.

Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This was super easy!! I woke up and had a hankering for pancakes, so I looked up a recipe and thought this sounded easy and they were! I used wheat flour instead of white, applesauce instead of the oil and egg substitute and they were delicious. No need to ever spend the money on a box of mix. Thanks!!

Broiled Chicken with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Hello...this was delicious! I actually only made the sauce and put it in a baked pasta dish. I was looking for something very garlic based because we LOVE garlic! I had to make changes based on what I had and because we are a gluten free family. I can't wait to make this again and neither can my husband! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!! Changes: 2 heads of garlic & roasted it for 40 minutes, 1/4 cup of Parm cheese and 1/4 cup Asiago cheese , (we love our cheese too), rice flour & stirred in some sauteed peppers and onions.

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I had never made these before, but was looking for a gluten free bread recipe for my husband. I tried them a few days ago and they were delicious!! The flavor reminded me of the cheddar bay biscuits at Red Lobster. They were a little too dense, but that might have been my fault. I substitued apple sauce for the oil and only had brown rice flour. I agree with some of the other reviews to add more cheese and if you are a garlic lover like me, add more of it too. Thanks for the recipe and I will surely make this again!!

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Yummo!! I have never made a crab cake before and this was delicious, eventhough it was a little salty. The only changes I made were Miracle Whip for the mayo, King crab for the lump crab and omitted the butter. Oh, I did have to add some extra breadcrumbs because it was a little wet, but not very much. I scaled it down to just make 2, so I didn't make my family the guinea pigs! Excellent recipe and will definitely make this again!! I forgot to say I took the advice of others and only cooked them for about 10 mins on each side!

Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I took the advice from someone else and omitted the spicy ingredients to make just honey roasted peanuts. The only reason I gave it a 4 was "about 30 minutes" was too long. I only baked them for 22 minutes, while turning then every 7 to 8 minutes and they still were a little burnt. They were tasty though, so I will certainly make these again!

Bratwurst Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
I didn't really enjoy this, but my husband did. I followed the recipe pretty close, but took the advice of others and used lemon juice instead of the OJ because I didn't have any. I also added 5 cloves of boiled garlic (smashed in a garlic press) and 1/4 cup of ckn stock to the potatoes because they were still a little hard after 6 minutes. There also wasn't enough sauce to coat the whole dish.

Nanny's Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
This was alright. I didn't see the difference between this and a thin pasta sauce. Only changes I made were ground turkey for the beef, no mushrooms because my husband hates them, added in fresh garlic instead of garlic salt and green beans for the zucchini. It was just too bland, but I saved it by adding extra paprika and basil, plus pepper and a tad of cayenne. I probably won't make this again.

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This was very yummy! It was sooo easy to make! I only made 2 chicken breasts because I wasn't sure if I would like it, but it was delicious! The chicken was moist on the inside and had a little crunch on the outside from the sesame seeds. The seeds didn't stick very well, so after I put them on the baking sheet, I threw a few more on top! The only thing I added was 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the dry mix. Thanks for a super simple and yummy dish!

Company Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I loved this recipe!!! My husband had never had couscous before and he ate the entire pot of this!! (I did cut the recipe to only 3 servings!) The only changes I made were: I used whole wheat couscous, chicken stock instead of water, extra garlic, yellow onion instead of green and omitted the tomatoes because my husband doesn't really like them. I served them with my Cumin Meatballs...absolutely delicious!! I will certainly make this again!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
These were super delicious eventhough I made a few changes. I replaced the corn syrup with honey, didn't use the sesame seeds because I didn't have them and omitted the chocolate chips, but added extra raisins. I cut them into granola bar length, wrapped them individually for an easy on the go breakfast! I will definately make these again! Oh I also crunched up about 1/3 cup of peanuts because my husband loves them. It gave them a crunchier texture!

Creamy Parsley Veggie Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly, but I cut it in half and it didn't have any flavor except for the mayo and mustard. I had to add extra parsley, fresh basil, an extra clove of garlic and a roasted bell pepper seasoning. With all of that added, it tasted alright, but was still way too thick. I won't be making this again.
